Free MJPEG IP Camera Record Video With Audio On Alarms

Postby TheUberOverLord » Wed Oct 31, 2012 12:48 am

"Even if you do not have a need to record alarm video. It's a good idea to know if your cameras are healthy, able to communicate at all times. So that you can be informed by other alarm notifications such as Email or FTP alarm notifications. If you don't know if a camera is online or offline at all times, then you may not get ANY notifications of any camera alarms."

You can configure this Interface to simply warn you of any cameras being offline, not responding, at any and all times, without using it, to record. You can be monitoring the health and current status of, as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time, using this Interface. With no need to use the alarm record option. This also gives you instant, 1 click access, to any and all cameras, at anytime.

Image
New Version Released: Version 3.0

Is this FREE tool, missing from your cameras toolbox? Why?

Image
Get Out Of the 1920's NOW! and for FREE!

Also, INSTANTLY go to any of as many as 10 different cameras, without the need to logon first. You set the security access level, as a Visitor, Operator or Admin User Level, on a per camera basis, using 1 click on any Icon for any camera, to see what is causing the camera to alarm.

You can do this at anytime, even when a camera is not alarming. Includes "Infinite Zoom" for camera video as well. Single Left-Click on video image zooms each time. Double Left-Click on video image, resets video to normal size. Configurable zoom percentage increase, per click as well. Default is 50 percent zoom factor, per click.

You can also save the alarm video ("Now with audio") recordings, in different folders. On a per camera basis, if desired.

This ("Free") Interface monitors and records alarm videos with audio, unlike the Standard Camera Interface, that comes with these cameras, which ONLY records video. It also uses ("50 percent less disk space") to do so. For ANY Length of recording time you wish. For as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time! using many times less the CPU and memory resources, that using other methods, require.

This is a FREE Interface that allows you to monitor, view and modify camera settings, optionally record both video and audio on alarms, including both motion and sound detection alarms, for any length of time, configurable on a per camera basis, for as many as 10 cameras, at the same time. All from one window.

Both visual and optional sound notifications on a per camera basis can be configured to inform you if any of your cameras has gone offline, has an alarm, or is operating properly. Sound notifications can also be muted at anytime, if needed.

The Interface on a per camera basis, can be configured to use any User Level Ids. Visitor, Operator or Admin.

The Standard Camera Interface that comes with these cameras does NOT record audio with the video captured during alarms.

Did you know that the video recorded with no audio on alarms using the Standard Camera Interface included with these cameras, is a fixed 60 second time period and cannot be changed to be a shorter or longer video only recording duration, when an alarm takes place?

This Interface can monitor alarms for as many as 10 different cameras at the same time and record video and audio for any of the 10 cameras on alarm, at the same times, if needed.

Email and/or FTP alarm notifications, are not required to be enabled, to record Video and Audio with this Interface. Motion and/or Sound Detection, must be enabled to record Video and Audio with this Interface.

The Standard Camera Interface included with these cameras, will only record Video Only, for 60 seconds when an alarm takes place, this is NOT adjustable, then it will stop recording.

You do NOT need to be using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with these cameras, or have it open, to make these video and audio recordings during any Motion or Sound Detection alarm or to monitor the status of any of your cameras or to view or change the settings of any of your cameras.

This free interface works currently, with Windows systems only. This Interface requires you to edit it and change the Interface configuration parameters to be for your MJPEG IP cameras. You can edit the "MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta" file with for example, Windows Notepad, and then save your changes after unzipping the .zip file, for download below.

This free interface, allows you to record both video and audio, for as short or as long as you wish, configurable on a per camera basis, once an alarm takes place.

The normal alarm period for these cameras, is 1 minute, or 60 seconds. If you are currently recording Video and Audio already with this Interface, for a specific camera, when another alarm starts, no new recording will be started by this Interface, until that recording is completed by this Interface, for that specific camera.

Example: You decide to record for 120 seconds ("Two minutes") once an alarm takes place, 60 seconds has gone by and a new alarm has started. Since you are still recording, no new recording will start. Once the initial Video and Audio recording has completed for that specific camera. If an alarm is still in progress, a new Video and Audio recording will be created, for that specific camera.

You can be using the Standard Camera Interface included with these cameras at the same time recording with it, while also recording with this Interface.

The default file location for your recordings will be in the same folder that you place this interface in. You can change this, using the Interface recording configuration options. This means you could create copies of this Interface, and place them in different folders, for each camera, and the recordings for that specific camera, will be in that specific folder.

This Interface does not modify or use any path you may have defined for where to store recorded files using the Standard Camera Interface supplied, with these cameras.

You can also record Video and Audio for a shorter period than the 1 minute alarm period for these cameras, but if you do, another recording will not be started for 1 minute after the shorter than 60 second recording started, for that specific camera.

The default time to check for alarms for the Interface, is once every second, this can also be changed to be longer, using the Interface recording configuration options. This may seem frequent, but it does not require much system resources to do this.

You can choose and change the resolution, 640*480, 320*240 or 160*120 for the Video during recording on a per camera basis, using the Interface recording configuration options. The Interface default is 640*480 Video recording.

You can also choose and change the recording FPS ("Frames Per Second") rate for the Video when recording, from 1 Frame every 3 seconds to 30 FPS, using the Interface recording options, on a per camera basis. The Interface default is 30 FPS.

You also can choose if VLC starts minimized when an alarm recording takes place, on a per camera basis, by default it does. This can be changed using the Interface recording options. VLC is automatically stopped once the recording has completed.

This allows your camera alarm recordings to take place as needed, without popping up windows in your face. When VLC starts minimized, an Icon, in the system tray is created, while the Video and Audio recording is taking place, and the icon goes away, automatically, once recording has completed and the VLC Media Player started to make the recording, is stopped.

This Interface does allow multiple copies of the Interface to also run for the same specific camera. So that if you wanted, you could record both shorter and longer length durations alarm Video and Audio recordings, for the same camera, at the same time.

It's important to note, a fact that few camera owners are aware of. Which is these cameras can only support 4 formallly logged in Interfaces at the same time, before it denies other connections. This includes video streams as well as Interfaces like this and other 3rd party applications. If you look at my signature, in this post, you will find another free interface, that has no limits like this and can be used in fact to access your cameras, when other methods fail, due to your cameras, reaching this limit.

You can be using other instances of the VLC Media Player for other things at the same time. Only the copy of VLC started to record the Video and Audio, is stopped, once recording has completed.

You must configure the Interface to use a valid User Id and password for your camera. This User Id can be a Visitor, Operator or Admin level User Id for the camera.

The default Video and Audio alarm recordings is set to 60 seconds, or 1 minute. You can make this time shorter or longer for any length of Video and Audio recording once an alarm starts to be as short or long as you wish, in seconds, on a per camera basis using the Interface configuration options.

The Interface MUST remain runnning to capture and record alarms. You can minimize the Interface to your ToolBar, if needed, while it is runnning.

The recorded Video and Audio recordings are saved as .asf files, with the filename starting with the name of your choice based on the name you choose, in the Interface configuration options and then including the date and time in the filenname appended to that name, for easy reference on when the alarm Video and Audio recording was recorded and for what camera.

The VLC Media Player, needs to be installed, prior to using the Interface. You must play these recorded .asf files with the VLC Media Player. You can open any of the Video and Audio recordings, by right-clicking on them and choosing "Play with VLC Media Player" to play them. If you don't see that option on your system use Open With -> VLC Media Player. One or the other option, will be present on your system if VLC has been installed.

If your Windows system is a 64 bit system, you MUST change the Interface configuration option var is64bitwindowssystem ="N"; to be
var is64bitwindowssystem ="Y";

Please make sure you have the latest version of VLC installed. It should be version 2.1.5. If it's not you can download/update VLC here:

http://get.videolan.org/vlc/2.1.5/win32/vlc-2.1.5-win32.exe

If you have any questions, please post them here.

DOWNLOAD the .zip file that contains the new 3.0 version here:

http://www.saveontelephonebills.com/camera/GenericMjpegRecordV30.zip

Simply right-click on the link above and choose "Save Target As". Then once dowloaded, right click on the GenericMjpegRecordV30.zip file and choose "Extract All".

Then simply use Notepad to open and edit MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta, make your changes, save your changes.

Then simply click on MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta and create an alarm for your camera, to make sure a Video and Audio recording was created for the alarm, for the duration, in seconds you specified.

Note: On some Windows systems, you may get a "Access Denied" error or all the cameras will show as yellow and never go to green when trying to run MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta. If this does happen, simply right click on MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta in Windows file explorer and choose properties, then on the general tab, if you see "Security: This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer" then simply click the "Unblock" button, then the "Apply" button, then the "OK" button. Do the same for all files in the folder, including the icon and gif files and then try running MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta again.

If you wish to remove the Internet Explorer warning message that says "Internet Explorer restricted this web page from running scripts or ActiveX controls" Please do this:

Using an Internet Explorer window, If you go to Internet Options->Advanced, scroll down to the security section there should be an option Allow active content to run in files on My Computer. Enabling this should allow them to run.

Then, right click on the .asf recording file, and choose "Play with VLC Media Player" to play them. If you don't see that option on your system use Open With -> VLC Media Player. One or the other option, will be present on your system if VLC has been installed.

When viewing any of the recordings, using the VLC Media Player, you can also create snapshots from the recorded Video, at anytime, as needed. From the VLC Media Player window menu, simply choose View -> Advanced Controls to do so. Additional Icons will then display at the bottom of the Video and Audio VLC window, to allow you to do that.

Note: There now is an additional file called TheMJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.htm, which you can use to monitor and access your cameras, that does not record. Unless you wish to use this file, there is no need to do anything with it. If you do wish to use it, please edit it as you would edit the MJPEGIPCameraRecordV30.hta file.

Please also read this as well about recently added new features to the Interface: free-mjpeg-record-on-alarm-any-number-of-seconds-t3431.html#p16351

Please see my signature, in this post below, for links to other free Interfaces, that work with other Foscam IP Camera models.

Re: FREE MJPEG Record On Alarm ANY Number of Seconds

Additionally, these MJPEG based IP cameras also have the ability to alarm based on sound detection, not just motion detection. You can also set the sound detection sensitvity as well.

This feature is actually built-into your MJPEG IP camera, but there is no UI ("User Interface") included with the Standard Camera Interface to enable/disable sound detection alarms or set sound detection alarm sensitivity.

This means you now, can create alarm video that includes audio, not just based on motion detection alarms, but also with sound detection alarms. You can enable both motion detection and sound detection alarms at the same time, or only motion or sound detection, your choice. Whatever alarm notifications you have set your MJPEG IP cameras to use, such as Email and/or FTP notifications, will also be sent for sound detection, when sound detection is enabled.

You do not need to use Email or FTP alarm notifications, with this interface. Video with audio can be recorded during alarms, using this Interface with no alarm notifications set.

This Interface also works with the Alarm Schedule, if it is enabled as well.

Example: You can now record video with audio, as soon as the camera hears a door open, or a noise, even before there is any motion detection sensed "in the frame of view" of the camera and you can set the duration of this recorded video with audio, to be as short or long as you choose, when any sound or motion alarm takes place.

After all, if someone is NOT supposed to be where the camera is located, at that time. Would you not want to be able to start recording what they are saying as soon as the camera hears them, without the need for them first, to be in the cameras view before your recording starts?

This other free Interface I created, does have a UI to enable/disable sound detection and sound detection sensitivity, when logged into this Interface using an Admin Level User Id:

More here: free-generic-browser-interface-for-foscam-ip-mjpeg-cameras-t2522.html

So by using/combining the use of both of these free Interfaces, you can now record both video and audio on alarms, when alarms are caused by motion and/or sound detection. With that video and audio recording duration, being the length of your choice.

Version 1.1 released.

Changes:

Now supports monitoring the alarm status for as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time. Allowing this single Interface to record both video and audio on alarms for as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time.

This is important because using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with the camera requires that each camera have an open IE 32 bit browser window open, at all times to monitor each camera for alarms to be able to record video. Even then, you would only record video not video and audio like this Interface does.

Made sure that month, day, year and hour, minute and second always have 2 digits each in the recording filename.

Changed to better methods to use less system resources.

General Advice on Recording Video with Audio on Alarms

There have been many comments in the forum on how sometimes, when video is recorded on alarms, even using the Standard Camera Interface, that comes with the camera. That whatever tripped the motion sensing,in the camera, was not caught by the camera, in the video recording.

Generally, this can happen, if you are trying to over-drive the camera by requesting a FPS ("Frames Per Second") rate higher than the camera can provide, at that moment using the cameras video resolution, set at that moment.

The smaller the video resolution, the more FPS you can get from the same camera. So, you need to decide, what is most important for you? Higher FPS recorded video or better video size.

If you choose a larger video resolution size, then you need to understand that your FPS rate for recorded video, will need to be a lower FPS than what it would be at a smaller video resolution size.

When you add audio to video, as this Interface does, for alarm recordings, this also increases the data flow from the camera as well.

I have created another Interface, that allows you to see, what the FPS at what vioderesolution your camera can provide, in real-time. This will be different for each camera, based on if it's in wireless or wired mode, location, as well as how many cameras you are using on the same local network.

The Interface, will show you the FPS for any camera, in real-time, as well as BPS ("Bytes Per Second when using a IE browser"). You can also change the cameras video resolution, in real-time, to see what the maximum FPS rate is at that video resolution.

During your tests for this, please set the Internal FPS rate to 30, for this Interface, to make sure you are seeing the maximum FPS rate for the video resolutions you choose. The Interface can be used with your own cameras without the need to download it first and configure it for your own cameras. More here:

free-generic-browser-interface-for-foscam-ip-mjpeg-cameras-t2522.html

It's suggested, that for long-term use, to download and configure your own copy of the Interface above, since there are time limits when using it online.

Once you have determined what a specific cameras maximum FPS rate is at the video resolution you wish to record video and audio on alarms, you can then use those settings for that camera, for this Interfaces configuration options, to get the best possible video and audio recordings, from this Interface.

This Interface can monitor as many as 10 different cameras and record both video and audio on alarms for those cameras. The alarms can be caused by motion or sound. This allows you to use one Interface to do this while also recording audio with your video recordings vs. using one browser window per camera, always open to do the same, when using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with the cameras, that will only record video.

Personally, I like to use a 160*120 resolution, because it allows me to get the highest possible FPS rate, it also is a smaller recording file size. Since VLC can zoom as well as take snapshots.

Peronally, I would rather see what set motion detection or sound detection off vs. missing it because my FPS rate was so slow, that I did not capture what set the camera to alarm, in the recorded video and audio.

Also, since these cameras support sound detection, it's possible now, to start recording audio and video as soon as the camera hears a noise vs. only when it sees motion.

Now that you can record both video and audio on cameras when they alarm and for as many as 10 cameras at the same time. Recorded video with audio, makes even more sense.

Here is a link to download this Interface:

Made some performance changes to use less system resources. To monitor each camera takes about .25 of 1 percent per camera of CPU busy average time on a 2.30GHz single core system. This means to monitor 10 cameras would be about 2.5 percent CPU average busy time. System memory usage also is very small, about 26MB peak. One Browser.exe process takes from about 50-100+MB, depending on the browser, just to compare.

Of course even using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with these cameras, requires 1 IE ("Internet Explorer") browser window to be open, at all times, to record video only on alarms. This Interface uses 1 window, for as many as 10 cameras and records video with audio that you can define as you wish, that are not required to be in your Multi-Device List.

As you can see by the above. This Interface has many system performance benefits vs. running the Standard Camera Interface that come with the cameras to monitor cameras for alarms as well as vs. using NAS/NVR or other 3rd party software to monitor cameras for alarms.

Many people are not aware that these cameras can only support having 4 connections at one moment in time open that are formally logged in connections. This includes video streams as well as most 3rd party applications as well as copies of the Standard Camera Interface open for the same camera. When this limit is reached, the camera will refuse all connections until there is a free connection available.

Because of the methods used in this Interface, this Interface is not formally logged in, unless it is recording video and audio for a camera alarm. Once that recording is complete, that connection is released. The same cannnot be said for other Interfaces, like the ones mentioned above. So it is possible for you to "Lock yourself" out from accessing a camera, if you already have too many connections to that camera, currently connected.

Added an Icon for the Interface, if you move the Interface, please also place the .icon in the same folder if you want to use the default icon.

Added HTA Application Elements that you can change. Here is the list of them:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/ms536495(v=vs.85).aspx

Changed Application Elements, to default the Interface to start minimized to the toolbar at startup.

This can be important when you want to create a shortcut to this Interface and place that shortcut in your systems startup folder, so that when your system starts, the Interface will be started automatically and minimized to the toolbar. To make it start maximized you can change WINDOWSTATE = maximize.

This allows you to be monitoring all your cameras, from the time your system starts, automatically, with no worry about forgetting to start this or that, without human intervention. Because the icon is now unique, you also know the Interface is running because you can see the Interface icon, in the toolbar.

Changed Application Elements. Default is that the window for the Interface does not have any minimize/maximize/exit icons in the top right of the window. You can change this to be setting SYSMENU = Yes to make these controls be present in the Interface window. Otherwise you can simply right-click on the Interface Icon in the toolbar, and choose close to exit the Interface. This makes it more complicated to accidently stop the Interface. You can also left-click on the icon in the toolbar to minimize/maximize the Interface window, when needed.

Changed Application Elements. Made sure that only one copy can be allowed to run at one time, to monitor the same cameras. This way, it's not possible to accidently start more than one copy of the Interface to be monitoring the same cameras. If you want to change this, you set SINGLEINSTANCE = No, in the Interface configuration, or you can create a copy of the Interface, and give it a different name.

The reason for these changes are, since this Interface can be responsible for recording video with audio on alarms, for as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time, on both sound and motion detection alarms, the goal was to make it easier to add the Interface to the startup of your system, while not making it intrusive to do so, by starting it minimized, using an icon that you can remember and making it harder to accidentally stop.

At the same time, it is equally important that you have the ability to configure the Interface, the way you wish.

You can use this other Interface below now automatically with this Interface, to enable sound detection for your cameras, when using that interface as an Admin User Level Id and adjust sound sensitivity as well. Sound detection is native to these cameras. There just is no UI ("User Interface") that comes with the Standard Camera Interface, that comes with the cameras, to enable/disable and set sound sensitivity.

Video with Audio will also be recorded then, with this Interface, for not just motion alarms, but also sound detection alarms, when using this Interface. You can have both motion and sound detection enabled at the same time, or just one of them or of course, none of them.

More Here: free-generic-browser-interface-for-foscam-ip-mjpeg-cameras-t2522.html

You can also use this Interface below, in combination with this Interface for your cameras, that instead of simply using vertical or horizontal Patrols you can chain Presets and/or Patrols together, with the delay times between them, of your choice, so that your cameras can go from/to Preset to Preset with or without Patrols in between vs. using only Patrols, that maybe wasting time covering dead areas in your cameras view.

Re: FREE MJPEG Record On Alarm ANY Number of Seconds

Postby TheUberOverLord » Thu Nov 15, 2012 8:28 pm

Created a NEW version 2.0 which includes both visual and sound notifications now for as many as 10 different cameras at the same time.

NOTE: This is for monitoring your MJPEG based cameras from WITHIN your local network. On Windows based systems.

This new version now allows you to view all you cameras, monitor all your cameras, record video with audio on alarms for all your cameras and access and modify your camera settings for all your cameras, using 1 window and never needing to logon to any cameras, all from one window.

There is now a configuration option as well to be able to click on any camera icon representing a camera, to view that camera and modify that cameras settings, using the other free Interface I created automatically when using this Interface. Which is called the "Generic Browser Interface for MJPEG Cameras". That interface which you can now use automatically when using this Interface, exposes many hidden camera features, that you normally cannot see or access.

More here about that free Interface:

http://foscam.us/forum/free-generic-browser-interface-for-foscam-ip-mjpeg-cameras-t2522.html

There are now two different files:

MJPEGIPCameraRecordV20.hta

This file can manage and display visual notifications as well as sound notifications, for up to 10 different cameras. It also has the ability to record video with audio on alarms for the period length of your choice. The standard camera Interface that comes with the cameras, only records video ("No Audio") on alarms, for a fixed 60 second period on alarms.

MJPEGIPCameraRecordV20.htm

This does everything the above file does minus record. You would use this if you wanted visual and sound notifications on the status of your cameras, but do not wish to record on alarms using this Interface.

Notification sounds can also be muted with both of the above files. There are many configuration options with this free Interface.

Here is the download link to the new version:

http://www.saveontelephonebills.com/camera/GenericBIV27.zip

Please read the first post here on installation instructions once you have unzipped the new version here:

Created a new version. Which has many fixes.

1. Includes volume setting control for the Interface.
2. Fixed multiple sound control issues for the Interface.
3. Now allows using your Multi-Device List for all cameras.

You now can set the volume in the configuration options of the Interface for how loud the alarm sounds for cameras that are alarming or cameras that are not able to be contacted. This allows you to have your system volume at one level and the alarm sounds for this Interface at another volume level.

You can also mute/unmute the Interface at anytime, so if you are on a phone call nearby, you can silence the alarm sound of the Interface and re-enable it, after the phone call has completed. As one example.

Multiple Sound controls were left running for Interface alarms, when they should have been stopped. This has been fixed in this release.

By allowing you to use your already defined Multi-Device list configured using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with the camera while using an IE ("Internet Explorer") browser, you only need to configure the 1st camera in the configuration options of this Interface and choose the Use Multi-Device List option.

This allows you to configure this Interface quickly and also be able to add new cameras, by simply adding those cameras using the Standard Camera Interface that comes with the cameras, Multi-Device list.

This interface will then instantly see any new camera and there will be no need to change this interface, for any new cameras you add.

It should be noted, that clicking on the Icon representing any camera in this Interface, will allow you to view, control and configure any camera being monitored by this Interface, directly from this Interface.

This Interface supports many camera configuration options, such as the ability to enable "Sound Detection" for cameras, that the Standard Camera Interface, that comes with the camera, does not support.

This Interface can monitor as many as 10 different cameras, at the same time.

This interface records video with audio on camera alarms for any length of time you wish, for as many as 10 cameras. The Standard Camera Interface that comes with theses cameras, does NOT record audio with alarm video and the video only recordings, it does records, are a 60 second, fixed time length, video only recording.

Please go here for more details and for the link to download this free Interface:

Do you only want to have this for your recorded Alarm Video?

What if the people who are destroying/taking your property are saying their names, talking about WHERE they are going to take ("Your Stuff!")?

Would you also NOT want what they are saying, recorded on your alarm videos, before they even get into your cameras view?

Because right now, all you have is this:

Re: FREE MJPEG Record On Alarm ANY Number of Seconds

Postby caloy » Thu Dec 20, 2012 9:51 am

hello. I used your software and it performed as described and I was really impressed. I used 4 cameras and it didnt slowed down my computer with only 2 gigs ram and a processor of Celeron. In line with this, Is there a way it can delete old recorded video automatically say when it reach 500gig capacity? Thanks for the great FREE software !

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, the CPU and memory overhead when using this Interface vs. the Standard Camera Interface that comes with the camera to monitor cameras and record on alarms, is many times less.

I am working on a method to do auto-deletes based on age and/or size of recorded files. I just want to test it more, to make sure it cannot accidentally delete things, it should not be deleting.
